To reset your DirecTV remote to factory settings, follow these steps:
- Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT buttons together until the light on the remote flashes three times.
- Press 9, 8, 1, and then SELECT. The remote should flash four times, indicating that it has been reset to factory settings.
If this process does not work, you can try an alternative method:
- Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT buttons until the remote’s light flashes three times.
- Enter 981 and press SELECT. The remote will flash four times, indicating that it has been reset to factory settings.
After resetting your remote, you may need to reprogram it for your HDTV or audio device. For more information on programming your DirecTV remote, refer to the official DirecTV support articles. What equipment do you send back to DIRECTV? All of it! Including the remote!
